Letter of Encouragement to be Christ’s Hands, Feet and Voice!

Greetings in Christ!

A singer and songwriter by the name of Gordon Jensen wrote a song some years ago which mentions the fact that you and I as Christians are the only “Jesus” that many people will see.

No, this does not mean we are Jesus Himself of course. We know He is Jesus all by Himself, yet it should be our goal and desire to be just a bit more like Him every day by sharing what Christ is like. We are to be “lights” in a dark world! If there is ever a time for people to see Christ in action through His people, it is today! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Once again, it is that time of year we focus upon Missions! (Actually, we do so all year long, but just a bit “extra special” at this time).

Matthew 24:14 (NIV) 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear (FRIENDS)

It is with a great sense of burden and sadness in my heart as I prepare this note to you.  Like you, I have seen such utter devastation and calamity unfolding before our eyes in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.

News outlets are doing a tremendous job in sharing the details of this disaster, and it seems that each day provides more insight into the plight of the people of Haiti. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Jesus said in: Mark 16:15 – “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”

Those words spoken by the Lord are at the heart of our desire to share the Gospel with the world through our Missions giving here at First Christian Church.  Sadly, the Great Commission has become for many people the “Great Omission”, as they have failed to realize the supreme importance Jesus placed on reaching the lost.

Dear

I wanted to take a moment to send you this brief note to inform you of the tremendous giving opportunity being made available to us by Franklin Graham and the ministry team at Samaritan’s Purse.

Every year at this time, a special emphasis is made on ministering the love of Jesus Christ in a very practical way by providing gifts to needy children all around the world, who would otherwise never know the joy of receiving gifts at Christmas time.
